Hello,

This afternoon I asked a question and immediately closed it without grading because I found out the answer in proz glossaries.

Now, the question has got 2 answers and 11 agrees to one of them.

To avoid this situation, is it possible to highlight closed questions without grading in a different colour?

Thank you in advance,
Ivana

Colour code necessary Nov 18, 2007

Very often I answer questions that turned out to have been cancelled. Reason: answer found elsewhere.

This is really annoying. Time and effort wasted!

A colour coding is definitely overdue.

Good idea. Nov 19, 2007

Different colors in Kudoz answering page can make the system works better.
And it should be easy to implement, I believe.

Good idea!

Ivana, why don't you submit the idea as a feature request, so the Proz staff members will become aware of it.
